Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 13: Members of Civil society Kishtwar joined by scores of people today staged a peaceful protest demonstration against the district and hospital authorities of Kishtwar for non-availability of CT Scan in district hospital Kishtwar due to its malfunctioning.
Social Activist Naseer Ahmed Baghwan said that at the time when COVID-19 cases and accidents are rampant in erstwhile district Kishtwar and frequent earthquakes have made the life of people miserable, not a single CT scan machine has been functional in the district hospital Kishtwar.
He lamented that people are forced to consult outside of district for arrangement of CT scan machine even this district hospital lacks basic medical assistance, he alleged. "The population of district Kishtwar of Kishtwar is more than 2.5 lacs and for doing a simple CT scan, one has to travel to Doda, Jammu or Srinagar", he said.
'People are suffering on daily basis due to lack of basic necessities in district Kishtwar," lamented another activist Arshad Hussain Giri. He said most of the people in district Kishtwar live in villages and people expect basic essentials in district hospital Kishtwar, but unfortunately people are forced to move out side of the district hospitals.
The protestors urged to Lieutenant Governor, Jammu & Kashmir Manoj Sinha and District Development Commissioner Kishtwar to take appropriate measures to equip the hospitals with proper tools and warned if their genuine demands are not filled, they will hit the road again.
